4. The days are long but the years are fast. One day you’re just cramming your undergraduate thesis, the next day you’re living your dream job or starting a family. Or.. one day you were just saying “I do” and marrying your best friend, the next day you’re a mother and there’s no turning back.
Time flies, no need to rush. Make the most out of every season in your life.
5. Preserve memories, keep remembrances. Our minds can only remember so much, so try to preserve memories as much as you can. Take lots of photographs, keep a planner, write a journal, timestamp milestones, publish a blog even. Social networks like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, if used in moderation, are good tools in keeping memories. Use them well.
Someday you’ll want to look back, and these little remembrances that you’ve collected through the years will help you appreciate how far you’ve come.
6. In the midst of memory-keeping, don’t forget to live. Some days you become too involved in keeping memories that you forget to make memories. If you must process photographs or publish a blog, ahhhh, learn from me—don’t allow it to take up so much time! What’s the point of keeping memories when you don’t have any memories to keep? :)
